Do you have a wish for your youth club or project but you need some help to get it started?
The Irish Youth Foundation offers you a chance every year to take part in our Children’s Hour Grants campaign. This annual campaign asks employees and companies throughout Ireland to donate one hour of their pay to help disadvantaged youth around the country. We then distribute the donations to youth groups around the country who have written into us for funding support in the coming year. On average each company raised €1,200 in our 2013 campaign, which allowed for 28 projects across Ireland to receive funding through our Children’s Wishlist program.
You can go to our Children's Hour site, www.childrenshour.ie to learn more about
To help us make a strong plea to companies each year, we ask youth and voluntary groups around Ireland to write in and tell us what their club/project will need in the coming year. Our application deadline for this year's wishlist ended in October, however - the application for the 2014 wishlist will be available around September 2014, so be sure to sign up then.
*Please note that funding for this program is not guaranteed and is dependent on the number of donations received
